Exploration of Wireless Sensor Network Based on RSSI Positioning Algorithm

Shuan Liu


Based on the security of the receiving signal strength indicator positioning algorithm, the RSSI positioning algorithm in the environment of witch attack, wormhole attack and replication attack has largely failed.Although existing security positioning algorithms can effectively prevent attacks from occurring, the massive consumption of network resources can’t be ignored.Therefore, a tolerable security positioning method is proposed for each of the three attacks in order to improve the security of positioning.According to the node's physical information, the attack node is detected.Through simulation experiments, compared with the traditional indoor security positioning method, the proposed algorithm can significantly reduce the intervention of witch attack, wormhole attack and replication attack on positioning error.While achieving the goal of combating attacks, it reduces the computational complexity, decreases node energy consumption, and extends the network life cycle.
